KL Rahul won the toss and opted to bowl first in Dubai against the Sanju Samson-led side. Both teams named a few changes in their playing XI due to several unavailable players. Adil Rashid and Aiden Markram are making their IPL debut for PKBS while Evin Lewis is drafted in the XI straightaway.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Lewis opened the innings for RR and provided them with a blistering start before the latter got out for 36 in 21 balls. He scored seven boundaries and one huge six during his innings.

Sanju Samson came out to bat at number three who scored a century against PKBS earlier in the season in Mumbai and had thought of another good outing. However, this wasn’t the case this time around as KL Rahul took a superb catch to dismiss his counterpart.

Ishan Porel came to bowl his third over and he had already received a serious pelting from Lewis. Porel wasn’t bothered by his numbers and bowled a ball outside off which Samson opted to cut. But he wasn’t in control of his shot but the ball was looking like sailing over the head of the wicketkeeper.

KL Rahul was quick to react and plucked the ball out of the thin air with his one hand to cut Samson’s innings short this time, who got out after scoring four runs in five balls.

On the match’s front, Jaiswal and Lewis gave a blistering start to RR and scored 54 runs for the first wicket in 5.3 overs. Jaiswal is still going strong from the other end and looking ominous for a big knock.
